Regional Conservation Partnership Program


Call for Applications from Landowners: Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)

Through a partner effort, the Regional Conservation Partners Program grant "Building Resiliency in the San Juan - Rio Chama Region" was recently approved for $3.25 million in funding. This grant is a collaborative project to implement on-the-ground conservation practices on forest, range, and irrigated lands across a large region of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, including the Alliance region. Funding is also available for conservation easements on private lands. The  program and application process will be managed by the East Rio Arriba Soil and Water Conservation District. 

The Regional Conservation Partnership Program is not accepting any new applications at this time.
